Welcome to the newest iteration of the phpBBHacks.com Support Forums! As you have likely already noticed, the Support Forums are now operating on phpBB 3. After many years of standing on the very solid code base of phpBB 2, the time as finally come to embrace the future and move up to this powerful, more recent platform. It offers many exciting opportunities for expansion.
Even though we are moving forward, let's not forget the road already traveled. For those curious as to exactly how long the Support Forums ran on phpBB 2, that software was the backbone of this community for almost ten years to the day. Patrick upgraded the boards from phpBB 1.4.4 to phpBB 2 back in May 2002
. I'm not sure as to when the forums first started sporting the blue, white, and gray theme we've known from the phpBB 2 years. I hope you'll find this prosilver variant cast in those colors to be as pleasing to the eye, however.
Now, if you've ever updated a forum from one phpBB version to another, you know that sometimes things don't go quite as expected.
I believe I've tested this new installation and the few hacks installed on it well enough to squash any bugs. However, if you should encounter any problems as a result of the upgrade, please feel free to contact me by private message or the Contact form
, which is linked at the top of each Support Forums page.
If you should receive a password related error when attempting to log in for the first time, it may be helpful to request a new password
. The phpBB 3 documentation mentions that some passwords do not carry over well during the conversion from phpBB 2. Resetting one's password through this form can fix some password issues arising from the board conversions.
